Francine Ward, Esq.

Lawyer and Author

A professional speaker since 1995, Francine has engaged audiences large and small with her compelling story of triumph over insurmountable odds. Her authentic, impassioned message motivates and inspires audiences no matter what industry or background.

Once upon a time all the odds were stacked against Francine, from drug and alcohol addiction, living in poverty on the streets of New York City, to being trapped in a life of ill repute. Today Francine lives a blessed life traveling the world, owning two beautiful homes in California, the admiration of a loving husband, supportive friends and family, is a published author, and owns and operates a thriving legal practice. With 30 years of recovery under her belt, Francine is also a pillar of strength and support to those wrestling with addiction.
